Second community library opens in Poole

Following the recent opening of Poole’s first community library, a second has now opened its doors to eager readers. 

The new library, which is located in Bearwood Primary & Nursery School’s community room, launched with a grand opening event held on World Book Day.

Borough of Poole library staff have worked with school staff to prepare the new library, providing advice and support as well as new furniture and an initial stock of books. The library is fully accessible to all local residents, and will be open for business after school from Monday to Thursday between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.

Readers do not need to be a Poole libraries member to borrow a book, and there will be no fees or charges for the service.

Cllr Xena Dion, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Libraries, Borough of Poole, said: “It’s fantastic to see another community library opening so soon. I hope that many other groups will follow the example and come forward to run their own library.”

Cllr David Brown, Ward Member for Merley & Bearwood, Borough of Poole, said: “I’m very proud of the school and the Bearwood School Parents & Friends Association who have worked hard to get the new library up and running so quickly. It’s another great asset for the local community.”

Laura Bennett, Head Teacher at Bearwood Primary & Nursery School, said: “We were very keen to set up our own community library, and I’m very proud of the hard work that our staff have put into getting it off the ground. We hope to welcome many keen readers through the doors soon.”
